Rockfax Description
The arete of the slab is fine climb, delicate with an interesting and bold-feeling detour out left onto a hanging flange. HVS for the faint of heart maybe? © Rockfax

βeta: Feels very go-ey for VS. The move to the flange isn't too bad, close to gear, but you'd need rps to protect the next (not too hard) moves to the break. Where good gear and holds lead to the top. 4c next to good gear, then 4a/b a long way above gear!

βeta: offwidth crack?! the route follows the arete of the slab.. the 'underprotected' section can be protected with RP's

βeta: Steeping out left at half height feels difficult. Poor gear in this section (crux)adds to a growing feeling of unease, the good news is if you dont fall off the middle bit,you wont fall of the top.
